    Have you seen the updated myappfree app? It looks like the translucent tile concept might be starting to catch on.

    I am currently working on having a custom transparency level in the app. I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes. It may take a while, but a lot of you requested this feature.

    It's hard, at least for me, to notice the difference between 50 & 70%. Also, shouldn't 100% transparency be completely clear and 25% transparency be almost opaque?

    Oh, I mean the percentages as levels of visibility. Try using a different background to see the difference between 50 and 70. I'll tweak them more later.

    I have noticed an issue with the games tile. It is not changing transparency levels. Will fix that ASAP. Expect an update tonight.

    Any other bugs you guys noticed?

    The games tile was actually what I based my previous post off of. Now that I've tried it with different tiles I've noticed the difference. Maybe instead of "transparency" as the header for that page in the app you could use something else like "visibility" to clarify what the setting does.

    I use the shortcuts for a lot of apps on my phone where the live tile is either static or almost always the same, so unpinning and repinning all those tiles to change their transparency is a lot of work. Assuming other people are also in this same situation, it would be convenient to have a way to adjust the transparency (or visibility) settings for individual tiles of groups tiles through the app, so people wouldn't have to go back and forth between the start screen and the app.

    I am currently working on that, but implemented the feature as it is for the sake of giving people what they wanted sooner and adding to it later. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Will try it ASAP as i love the concept. I have tried it a while back on 8.1 DP, but for some reason it keep a process running with black screen (i noticed while navegating on the background apps) everytime i clicked used a shortcut. That was annoying and because of that i stopped using it, but will try it again to see the updates :D

    I checked all the tiles I have pinned and they work at all levels. These are the ones I checked:
    Xbox music, video, and games
    Skype
    Facebook Messenger
    Facebook
    Twitter

    I've noticed something about the Xbox video shortcut: It turns out that when you tap the tile, it goes to the video collection part of the app instead of the home screen like tapping the actual tile would.

    Sorry bout that, but that's on Microsoft's side of things, I can't do anything about it.
